CLOCHE is a porcelain form that, in addition to being merely a sculptural object, can be used for serving. It can function as a small bowl with a playful wobble, or simply as a cloche for small dishes. As the latter it gives an intriguing anticipation about the dish inside, and its form fits perfectly in the palm when you lift it.
The shape is derived from a walnut shell and is part of an ongoing project the designer works on with different kinds of products inspires by the same form.
Cloche will be shown in the exhibition Food Work at Designtide Tokyo. Food Work is an independent project initiated by Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, two of the founders of Norway Says. 21 designs by 8 Norwegian designers are to be shown at Tokyo Midtown Hall during Designtide Tokyo 2012 from October 31st to November 4th. As the title indicates, the topic of the project is food: storage, preparation, presentation, and eating. These objects spring out of simple and ordinary, yet essential and vital, actions that tie people together across cultural differences.
